Mariah Carey’s A Hero For Woman Who Can Walk Again

Globe magazine spoke with Janel Spiegel about her meeting with in 1997 when she was 16-years-old, when at the time she was wheelchair bound after breaking her hip in a roller-skating accident at the age of 9 and developed a avascular necrosis causing her crippling arthritis. “She hugged me and started to cry,” recalled Janel. “Mariah said, ‘Don’t cry because now I’m going to’ – and she did! She was so kind.” Now at the age of 22, Spiegel can walk again thanks to a total hip replacement, and she says Mariah’s encouragement helped inspire her to walk again. “Mariah told me I would walk one day, and after 10 years, I finally can,” she said. “I’m grateful to Mariah for caring and being such a cool person.”

    I remember this story…Mariah and Janel looked so pretty in their picture together! It’s good to see Janel’s doing well now. As for Misty83, you just made yourself look like a classless idiot by making that comment. I couldn’t care less if you love Mariah or hate Mariah…but you could be human enough to respect the fact that this girl was inspired by her and made it through something very difficult. Go post that nonsense somewhere else.

    No but I guess you have people confused with J-Ho’s Gigli, that movie flopped! Anyways, let the bi-tches be -whores-and the whor-es be -bi-tches! LOL, poor Jenny!! I’m so glad that more and more people are seeing Mariah’s talent as an artist and she’s getting more popular. Mariah’s back on top and her next project should be excellent. Mariah is so helpful to the needy and doesn’t just think of herself like some people in Hollywood.

    That is nice to hear. Mariah is a very talented person and a sweetheart. I love you Mariah and even if her album did flop just remember she is the best selling female artist of all time!

    I’m just waiting to see this on a infomercial for Mariah’s ‘Charmbracelet’ CD re-release…”With you’re purchase of this CD for only 19.95 you can help a child like Janel have hope for the future and maybe walk again. Give me a break.

    aw lamejessicasosodef is so pissed off that the one who helped this girl is Mariah and not her precious idol jho. that’s ok I feel your

  10. joxee says:

    Look people, wanejessicasosodef’s into people who has no talent like Britney, Jessica and Jho because sex sells for him and he hates and bashes artists like Mariah and Christina because they can sing. He said that Mariah’s career is over, when the fact is it’s not, while he denies the truth that Jessica’s career was over since the beginning.

    Ya Know, I’m reading you idiots comments, how old are you??? You are stupid and immature. This article is about somebody doing good, somebody being inspired and you hoes are hating…what if it happen to u? what if you were in a wheel-chair, and Mariah, Christina or Britney who ever paid you a visit, would it not lift your spirits. Grow up. This is real life, I know this site is about fun and acting a fool, but sometimes, you go to far. Remember, when you do and wish bad things on people, it comes right back to you. So sit at your computer, with your ugly lonely life and hate, while Mariah packs a full house full of fans who love and cherish her.
